StripperssSTANWOOD, Wash. – – Plans for a male strip club in Stanwood are getting the cold shoulder from city officials.

The proposed owner of the strip club has filed an application with the city for the building he rents on 271st Street Northwest in Stanwood, the Herald of Everett reported. The proposed club would be a venue for male strip shows, the paper said.

Stanwood Mayor Dianne White told the Herald, “There are many safety issues with this (application)…for example, there is no second exit.”

There are other problems with the owner’s application, the paper reported: the application doesn’t specify what the private club will be used for; the owner has not applied for a business license, and the owner hasn’t applied for a building permit for renovations that he’s made to the building, including a stage under construction.

The city of Stanwood has now issued a stop-work order.

    And just how many FEMALE strip clubs does Stanwood have???? I think the Stanwood officials are just scared to death that WOMEN might have a club in which to view and admire sexually-attractive males. Suddenly the city officials are grasping at straws to stop this business from opening. No doubt some local Bible-thumping preachers are in on this as well.

    Im not sure why this would be wrong when there are dozens of female strip clubs in Washington? If females are allowed to be exploited for money why not men?
    At the end of the day it would generate jobs & money. Something Washington NEEDS.

    And really lets face it sex sells & I for one as a female would be buying. I love a sexy man as much as a man loves a sexy female.
